About this track

Description

Once you enter the reserve, the high standard, short track winds its way up through established bush of puriri, cabbage trees and manuka.

After a short walk, you reach a stile at the top of a hill. From here, the track zigzags its way through flax and a number of very large pohutukawa trees down to the lovely Tauwhara Bay.

Getting there

The small town of Whananaki is situated on the east coast 45 minutes drive north from Whangarei.

The track is located at the northern end of Otamure Bay campground, just past the one-way bridge on Rockell Road 3 km north of Whananaki North.
